This {{Death Trope|s}} is one of the classic ways to kill someone in media. Take a knife, a straight razor, or some other nasty edged weapon and draw it across your victim's throat. In a lot of media, this is generally instant death, but in more realistic works, it is generally quite slow (unless the carotid arteries are all severed, in which case the target passes out after a few seconds due to lack of oxygenated blood to the brain--though it takes a certain amount of expertise to land such a strike) and VERY messy to boot, particularly if the carotid artery or the jugular vein are severed, though of course this depends on the work. Not to mention the victim usually drowns in their own blood before passing out. Naturally, {{Knife Nut}}s are particularly fond of this method.

* ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'': This is UsefulNotes/{{Jack|TheRipper}}-of-Smiles' usual preferred method of killing. [[HarmlessVillain Unfortunately for him]], DeathIsCheap in the Neath, and while there are ways to [[KilledOffForReal kill people for real]], a slit throat is decidedly ''not'' one of them.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Kyle kills [[KungFuJesus Jesus]] this way in Fantastic Easter Special. It was willing on Jesus' part, since it would allow him to resurrect nearby and use his [[DeathActivatedSuperpower divine powers]] to stop Snowball's execution, but Kyle was reluctant to do so at first, him being Jewish and all.
